Fables de La Fontaine
(Garnier Frères, Libraires-Éditeurs, 1859)
What a master Grandville is! I have several copies of Garnier's edition of his La Fontaine from 1868. I presumed, as I so often have, that I was buying a possibly better copy of a book I had already found. Again I was ...
Fables of La Fontaine
(Tappan and DennetWilliam A. Coleman, 1841)
I had thought at first that this was an extra -- in very poor condition -- of the apparent first edition. On closer inspection, the year is still that of the first edition, but this is clearly marked Second edition. The ...
Fables of La Fontaine, Vol. II
(Tappan and Dennet, 1841)
As I wrote of the first volume, I had thought at first that this was an extra -- in very poor condition -- of the apparent first edition. On closer inspection, the year is still that of the first edition, but this is ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1874)
This seems to be the earliest Girardet edition I have published by Mame. The edition seems to have begun in 1857 and to have been reprinted with a few corrections in 1860. Bodemann's next edition in this item is 1878. ...
Fables de la Fontaine
(Alfred Mame et Fils, 1890)
A beautiful little volume in better condition than my two later copies of the same book. 105 small but excellent engravings besides the frontispiece. Among the best are the illustrations of Death and the woodman (57), ...
Fables de J. La Fontaine
(F. Didot frèresParis: Librairie de Firmin Didot Fréres, Fils et Cie, 1859)
Perhaps the loveliest non-illustrated LaFontaine in this collection. The careful owners in this last, unexpected Albuquerque stop did not know that they had this book. Very good condition. Calf binding with marbled ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part I
(Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, 1883)
A beautiful edition with a partially missing spine. I picked up this pair of volumes thinking that it was just another Cassell edition of the Thornbury translation. Then I noticed in Hobbs (100) that the first English ...
The Fables of La Fontaine, Part II
(Cassell Petter, and Galpin,, 1883)
See my comments on the first volume of this beautiful set. No title page (or indication on Part I's title page that this is a two-part set). Pagination continues from Part I.
The Fables of La Fontaine (Flowered Cover)
(H.M. Caldwell Co., 1881)
Here is an extra copy of this book. This book repeats in all but two respects an edition with the same bibliographical information. First, it has a lovely floral cover, part of which is done against a white leatherette ...
The Fables of La Fontaine II
(Estes and Lauriat, 1881)
Here is an extra copy. This is the second of two volumes with gold embossed blue-and-white covers in excellent condition. It combines the final two volumes of the set of four which I found at Goodspeed's in March, '89, ...
